21 February 2009 - 02:59 AM

In Topic: HP DV Series Whitelist BIOS hack

10 January 2009 - 03:10 PM

I have a DV2839TX laptop (DV2000 series written on the screen bezel, and DV2700 series written on the bottom of the laptop).

I tried to edit F.2D bios with the IDs of my new card, and bricked my laptop. The usual Crisis Recovery method didnt work, but i figured out hw to recover anyway.. check out http://forum.insanel...&...t&p=1035155 for details.

Ive since noticed HP has a new F.2E BIOS for DV2000 series.. but i think it will be even harder to hack up.. ill take a look shortly, and see what i can find.. in F.2D the whitelist was in MOD_5100.ROM but i get the RLS error while decompressing the BIOS..

Lets hope F.2E (although i very much doubt it) works better.

So i modded up a BIOS image, flashed it, and bricked my laptop. I was able to recover though,BUT my laptop didnt support the Win+B or FN+B trick for the Crisis Recovery Disk.

So ill explain what i personally had to do:

1) prepare the Crisis Recovery Disk with the BIOS you want to flash back (original unedited BIOS).
2) Obtain a method to use the floppy on your laptop (I used a USB Floppy Disk Drive)
3) Remove the battery and AC power from the laptop
4) HOLD DOWN the power button on the laptop, insert the AC power cable (still holding the power button)
5) In a few seconds the Power light on the laptop should start blinking.
6) Release the power button
7) Plug in USB Floppy Disk Drive and insert Crisis Recovery Disk
8) Press the power button once.
9) The laptop should now start reading from the floppy disk, and beep VERY LOUDLY while it flashes the BIOS..
10) After a while, the beeping will seem to stop.. DONT TOUCH ANYHING.. It will start beeping like mad again shortly.
11) Once the BIOS has finished flashing, the laptop will power off.
12) Unplug USB Floppy Disk Drive, and boot as normal, with your recovered BIOS

Next steps are optional..

13) Boot your OS
14) Fiddle with your BIOS whitelist again
15) Flash the BIOS with this new modded BIOS Image.
16) Goto Step 1. (Or hopefully, you wont have to.)

Ok, got the BIOS extracted (using Phoenix BIOS Editor but with some errors. But, searching the extracted files (MOD_5100.ROM in particular) I stumbled across the list of whitelisted IDs. Right now, im not confident in editing the file, rebuilding the image, and flashing, since it extracted with errors in the first place.. But this is a step forward. I can atleast see what devices are whitelisted. When i manage to extract the BIOS without errors, ill edit, rebuild, and flash.

I have a DV2839TX Special Edition, and also need to remove the whitelist, or add IDs for a new card to it.. The Phoenix BIOS Editor i used (2.100 i think, or something) didnt seem to extract my BIOS properly.. i was attempting to use F.2D (latest for my machine) BIOS.
